Rochester police also confirmed that Stephens was “the last remaining hospitalized victim”.

rolling stone now reports that after the owners of Main Street Armory – where the concert took place – failed to show up for a meeting with the Rochester Police Department’s licensing unit, authorities immediately revoked the entertainment license of the place and will interrupt its renewal.

Rochester Police Chief David Smith told reporters on Wednesday: ‘This is one step we can take immediately to ensure the events of Sunday night do not happen again. Ultimately lives were lost and we need to take steps to ensure that no lives will be lost in the future if this was indeed something that was preventable.
